Missing "Preparing SILENT Mode Installation..."

Hello,

I have an installer that was created with InstallAnywhere 2009 and an installer that was created with InstallAnywhere 2012.

When I ran the installer (created with IA2009) in silent mode on Linux, I got this console output:

"
Launching installer...

Preparing SILENT Mode Installation...

===============================================================================
Installing...
-------------

[==================|==================|==================|==================]
[------------------|------------------|------------------|------------------]

Installation Complete.
"

When I ran the installer (created with IA2012) in silent mode on Linux, all I saw on the console was:

"
Launching installer...
"

The installation completed with no issue.

My question is have these messages "Preparing SILENT Mode Installation..., Installing..., and Installation Complete." been suppressed in IA2012? I still like to see the output so I can see the progress of the installation. Is there a setting that I can set to see these output messages?

Thanks,
Wonfe

Hi,

You could see the output during the silent installation if you would make the setttings as :

Project -> Log Settings - > Installer Debug output Smiley Frustratedend stderr to -> console
Send stdout to -> console

Re: Missing "Preparing SILENT Mode Installation..."

Hello Rajarajn,

I set both of these parameters to console and I still don't see the "Preparing SILENT Mode Installation..." message. All I saw was debug messages.

com.zerog.ia.installer.options.stdout.redirect=console
com.zerog.ia.installer.options.stderr.redirect=console

Is there another setting that I need to set?

Thanks,
Wonfe

InstallAnywhere 2012 has made silent install completely silent. So no console messages are expected.
